Synopsys

This award winner film by Daniel and Diego Vega centers on Clemente, a middle aged loner who has made a living for years as a moneylender, a job that suits his almost neurotic, selfish way of seeing life. A master in taking advantage of people going through rough patches, Clemente is about to face a challenge for which he is clearly unprepared when he is trusted with a baby girl.

Enter Sofía, a devoted neighbor who can’t help but care. As she becomes involved in Clemente's life, she will open a window for him to see beyond his own immediate needs, and maybe even start sharing other people’s hopes and small joys.
